The record was a staple of Juicy J’s mixtape days but got a wider release on the 1999 album CrazyNDaLazDayz, the sole LP by Three 6 Mafia spin-off group Tear Da Club Up Thugs. Although the track wasn’t a chart-topping hit, it became a cult classic.
“That was a song I wrote when I was in 11th grade,” Juicy J told Complex in 2011. “I was in a history class with this dude named Papa Owens, at North Side High School.”
“Every time I perform, whether it’s Japan, Italy — wherever — I have to perform that track,” he told Vibe Magazine in 2014. “They know it, word for word.”
Fans on Twitter shared their collective excitement — and surprise — about the classic song’s resurgence. Here’s a sample of the reaction below.
